*Hundreds of volunteers set out around and across Lake Lanier Saturday and, according to the sponsoring Lake Lanier Association, collected tons of trash, debris and “pesky” dock floats. Some even sprang into action with heavy machinery. (See picture.) They were part of the 35th Lake Lanier Shore Sweep. (Click here for more pictures.)
